The way he gets into your computer without being a **DUPE**
is that you either busted someone else's call, or you thought
he was working you when he was, in fact, working someone else.
I've been checking logs for many years, and I know that this
happens all of the time, and it happens to EVERYBODY!
Assuming that the only possible way that someone calling you, who is
already in your log, is **DUPING** you is a bit pretentious and
Have you ever called someone who refused to work you, saying
you were a **DUPE** when you knew that you were not? This is
far more frustrating than just working a guy who YOU think
is a **DUPE**. If the computer will sort it out without effort,
why would you risk a Q (With penalties) by insisting it is a **DUPE**
when you cannot possibly know for sure? Why would you even waste
time considering it??
